A League Of Their Own has announced a new Road Trip series.

Previously travelling across the US and Europe, the latest instalment in the sport-focused comedy's series of adventure specials will see Jamie Redknapp, Freddie Flintoff and Romesh Ranganathan travel from Loch Ness in Scotland to London.

Filming is now underway on the latest series, which is expected to air early in 2021 on Sky One, and also be available through the broadcaster's on-demand service, NOW TV.

Sky says: "Throughout the road trip the trio will be joined by stars from the world of sport and entertainment and there will be a very special guest appearance from Jack Whitehall.

"Challenges include outdoor survival skills with the SAS, gourmet cooking with a top celebrity chef and traditional Scottish Highland Games hosted by one of the UK's most celebrated sports stars."

The popular panel show proper is expected to return for its sixteenth series later next year, whilst a Christmas special will air on 17th December.

Sky also confirmed today that the previously announced third series of Rob & Romesh Vs is now in production, and will see the comedians - Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan - trying out a variety of vocations with the likes of Alan Carr, Andy Murray, Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and Michelle Visage.

Both series are made by CPL Productions.

Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts and the broadcaster's Head of Entertainment, says: "If ever we needed a laugh, it's right now, and as 2020 fades away we are delighted that the brilliant teams who make ALOTO Road Trip and Rob & Romesh Vs are able to safely traverse the length and breadth of Britain to bring us these comedy gems. 2020 can do one, bring on 2021."

Murray Boland, executive producer for CPL, said: "There's a fantastic family of talent on these shows both in front of and behind the cameras. We laugh as much making them as we hope audiences will watching them."
